Had a big storm late this afternoon after a sunny and humid day.  What a nice relaxing evening on the porch listening to the heavy rain and thunder.  I'll probably end the month with over 5 inches of rain.  That's very different from last year, when storms were frequent from Knoxville west, but it was pretty dry in far eastern TN.

A rare MRX FFW is out for West Knox right now. Typically in Chattanooga water rescues are underway before MRX pulls the FFW trigger. Donít know if that is also the case in Knoxville.

This morning was one of those rare times when you have exactly 1 inch in the rain gauge. 

It's a pretty dreary start to Memorial Day here.  Low, dark clouds and a light rain falling.  Not the best for any outdoor activities.

Was hoping we would see some Sun, as in previous days, but the rain hasn't let up.  Nothing heavy like yesterday, but certainly heavy enough to keep everyone on the porch.

Really digging the vibe of this weather. It's nice to have a break from the unseasonal warmth.

I'm completely out of my element: sitting in a coffee shop in the Old City among Knoxville's finest hipsters. I am also convinced all these people do is sip lattes and pretend to read something on their Macbooks  ::rofl::

Most of todays rain went to the west of I-65 and the sprinkles east. Hopefully tomorrow actually verifies

I just returned from Seattle Ö sunny and cool all week.  As I walked around the Market District in layered clothing and sensible shoes, I realized that I am neither young enough, fit enough, nor hip enough to survive there.  I am beyond "square" Ö more parallelipidedal with a rhomboid twist.

It seems the heavier rains are on the left side of the storm and even in the models coming more over west tn into north western middle tn by the end as it pulls north east. If that pans out a lot of south eastern areas of mid tn  might not even get much out of this besides pop up storms along its path. Sigh.. having my doubts once again.

Dude. Look at the radar. All of the moisture flow is on the east side. The left side is pulling in dry air. The heaviest rains will be right along the actual storm track (maybe extending 30-50 miles west) and then all the way back to the Carolinas. The entire eastern 2/3rds of the state will be getting decent rain from this. The only possible exception is the NE corner of the state, which will be subject to pretty extreme downsloping.

High pressure centered over the southern Plains over the weekend will create triple digit temperatures for much of the region; some areas in Oklahoma are forecast to reach 110 F under the latest GFS run. Memphis will get close to triple digits.

Meanwhile, cooler and wetter on this end of the state, but still above average.

Not sure if anyone saw this data for April:

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Global temp anomaly: +0.21 deg Celsius. This is a sharp decline from 2016, but still a significant warming trend. The 2010s are giving a better idea of what the climate was like during the Medieval Warm Period.

Interesting that in our regional "colder" winters of 2013-14-15, that same blue blob was only over eastern NA while the rest of the world torched.

Yeah theres several decent waves that could move through here the next few days it seems. Most seem to fall apart but look at today we have a line moving through right now. If it makes it to me ill get more rain from it then the past week or so lol ponds around here have dropped a foot so we need a good soaking to fill them back up.
Nevermind about the storm today the rain looks worse on radar then in person. still more rain then yesterday but barely
IF you watch the radar loop you can see where the storm i guess reorganized itself as it hit me and the main bulk of precip faded and was back there again but past me lmao are you serious... no wonder the rain was so light i was wondering how red on radar was raining at yellow's rate.
